Sadly rare, wonderful lecture video from the late Prof. Peter Kollock
Prof. Peter Kollock studied conflict and the emergence of cooperation as a sociologist and entrepreneur for nearly twenty years. In this rare video (I cannot find any other video recordings of Prof. Kollock on the web, if you find any, please send pointers my way) the core concepts of collective action dilemma theory are described and applied to a range of phenomena from traffic jams to the internet.
